Forum: GratefulDead Subject: There is no need to boycott Rhino, they are apparently doing it to themselves

I went over to dead.net and was looking through the store and was suprised to find that you can not purchase anything from the Filmore West 69 run anymore. The big box is sold out, the little box is currently not available and Live Dead is not even listed on the site (I found Skull and Roses under the studio album section). I also noticed that very few releases are currently available as downloads.

So I went over to iTunes and found the remastered Live Dead but noticed that they only have 30 releases currently for sale. I seem to recall the number was about 3 times that before.

Not sure what this means but if they can't actually offer up the stuff that has already been released, it does not bode well for new releases.

Update: I went back to dead.net and found that you can now purchase Live Dead but only in one format. Vinyl. This is not a joke. I know there are a bunch of people who still believe that this is the only way to listen to music but talk about marketing to a small group. Deadheads who thumb their noses at lossless.

What's next? 45s?

Vinyl making a comeback. . . cool I still have LiveDead, Europe '72 etc on vinyl out in the garage.

My 14 year old asked me what all the giant CD things were one day . . .so I took them out for a quick trip down memory lane. I'll have to get on of those portable box turntables with the speakers and all so I can play the LPs for the kids someday for kicks.

Thanks. I actually have mp3 copies of all 4 shows from the run. I went to the site looking to upgrade and support the band. Thats what I found so odd about it. I could not even spend my money if I wanted to. Its really strange because in the description of the currently not available 3 CD set, it states that none of the material from Live Dead is repeated in this release yet you can't purchase Live Dead from the site. It just makes no sense to me.

Yea, I plan to go see Ween not this Friday, but the Friday after in SC due to your rec, and that of some others, and having listened to some higher rated shows here on the archive.

Don't know where the Wilco footage came from -after coming home from trick or treatin' last night I found myself staring down the second bottle of red and that damn youtube grabbed me way past the time I should be asleep on a "school night".

and why I jumped on the ryan bandwagon a long time back in nc

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGckUO-ksDc

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jioy86El20s

...put down the bottle and go to bed...

I love playing with Ryan because he’s fearless; because he doesn’t have to do anything the same way twice; because every idea he throws out in a jam is a little gem that cries out “polish me”; because he has about nine hundred voices that he can use like a Bene Gesserit; because of his huge heart and enormous talent. I like it that we deconstruct the songs so that verses are transposed, or the bridge comes in early, or the jam leads back to a verse instead of a chorus. I like it that we have to be on our tippy-tippy toes to make the acute left turns and abrupt changes that Ryan likes to spring on us. I like to spring those kind of changes too- what do you think I’m doing when I talk into my mike and you can’t hear me? I love playing with Ryan because he takes me back to when the Grateful Dead were young, fearless, crazy and didn’t give a shit about what other people thought we should do. If what you desire is the perfect rendition, there are many excellent bands that perform Grateful Dead songs- but I have never been about perfection and never will be. I do promise that I will always do my best to follow my weird. I hope you will join me, but I do understand if your path takes you elsewhere. I will also say with no hesitation that Jerry would have loved Ryan and his fearless interpretations of his songs. It’s funny, but I feel Jerry close to me whenever I am around Ryan. — Phil Lesh (January 2006)

OK. I'll bite and sign the petition to boycott JOTS since he clearly has nothing critical to say about the boys and/or "free" market capitalism.

Mr. Young, Brigham was an ass, but you take the cake...

NO I say JOTS is a capitalist pig and knows nothing about the DEAD except some shows he's heard before.

HIS TYPES ARE WHAT BROUGHT THE SCENE DOWN NOT ANYTHING ELSE!

Steve - You don't believe that the folks who do the best work and give the most effort should reap the reward??

Do some people suffer in a capitalist society? Sure, but this is life on Earth, and it's survival of the fittest, baby!

AND, nobody does more for those without, those who can't than the good ol', capitalist, USA.

BTW, JOTS is a Communist compared to me.:)

I agree with JOTS. I think there is plenty of free music out there and it is the Grateful Dead's right to try to make some money on music they made. Another forumite recently told me he had downloaded all of the taper's section "releases" prior to the switch to streaming only. He said he got 100 hrs of free music in those downloads. What other band out there would give away 100 hrs of music!! And what other fan base would instead of being grateful for this gift, start whining like babies because 100 hrs is simply not enough?

You are entitled to NOTHING, be thankful for what you have.

I bought another DP today. I hope that by purchasing material, Rhino will be encouraged to release more.

On a serious note, thanks for saying that. For the life of me I can't understand why and what people are complaining about. That band gave me more than I can express with words.
